Quotes[edit | edit source]

Dr. Jonathan Newman: Hello, I'm Dr. Jonathan Newman.
Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: Are you absolutely sure?

Blanche Devereaux: Oh! Oh, I have never been so embarrassed in my entire life. I made a fool of myself, didn't I?
Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: Yes!
Blanche Devereaux: Well, I feel awful, just awful!
Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: Listen, if you don't want tonight to turn into a total disaster, you have to stop being so self-conscious.
Blanche Devereaux: Oh, well you're right, of course. Dr. Newman is a guest in our home. If I'm self-conscious, he'll be ill at ease. I can't allow that to happen. It would be... un-Southern.
Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: That's a good belle.
Blanche Devereaux: Dorothy, get the door. [picks up the tray of hors d'euvres and walks through the kitchen door. To Dr. Newman and Rose] Shrimp? [keeps walking in a circle so she can go right back in the kitchen]
